Who made this cutting board? In a small town outside of Antigua, Guatemala, the Artesanos de San Pedro have created a workshop dedicated to the sustainable production of handcrafted cutting boards and wine stoppers.
Why is it ethical? The Artesanos de San Pedro gather recycled or sustainably sourced wood from the Smartwood Alliance in order to secure the future of the wildlife that surrounds their community.
Who made these spreaders? Near the shore of Lake Atitlan, a small cooperative of “spoonmakers”, Los Cuchareros, call San Lucas Toliman their home in Guatemala. They make more than spoons, creating a variety of utensils. Each utensil begins life in the humid forest surrounding the Lake Atitlan where these spoonmakers collect coffee, jobillo, and tasisco wood.
Why is it ethical? Cuchareros take special care to preserve their surroundings, using only certified wood sources beyond that which they collect themselves, and a portion of their proceeds goes toward community programs, such as services for the elderly.
